The John F. Kennedy Space Center is one of ten National Aeronautics and Space Administration field centers. Since December 1968, Kennedy Space Center has been NASA's primary launch center of human spaceflight.  



Roland Miller has been photographically documenting and interpreting the United States’ space program for over 25 years. His series of images, Abandoned in Place, records the remains of the early space launch and research facilities around the country. Miller’s photography has been exhibited at the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and a selection of images from the Abandoned in Place series was on display in the Astronaut Crew Quarters at the Kennedy Space Center from 1998 to 2000.

Selected works from Abandoned in Place will be shown in an exhibition this summer at the Southeast Museum of Photography.

aLCHEMY AND ART: EXPLORING the tintype process

guest speaker: Tim telkamp

thursday, march 28, 2019 - 5:00-6:30pm

Tim Telkamp will provide an insightful lecture–and live demonstration–of some of the tools and techniques associated with the early Victorian wet plate (collodion) process.

Tim Telkamp is a photographer, alternate process artist, author and mentor currently living in Central Florida. Wherever life has taken him, from crossing the Arctic Circle to South America and Europe he has gone with camera in hand.  His photographs have been published in books, newspapers, and magazines, and he wrote and illustrated “The Place That’s Always with You,” a children’s story set in Central North Carolina that celebrates home and history. In contrast to his historical craftsmanship, he has also been involved in many high-tech designs and engineering projects.
